Staff appreciation signs popped up throughout the metro, honoring district staff heroes for their dedication to their students. At Westridge Middle School in Shawnee Mission School District, community partners joined the school’s administrative staff and PTSA to distribute signs to all WMS staff.

In Grandview, community partners worked alongside district administrators to plant signs in the yards of staff of all nine of the district’s schools. One grateful teacher posted: “To whomever made the drive from Grandview to Spring Hill to put this sign in my yard … you have absolutely made me a bundle of emotions this morning and I’m so thankful for this.”
